"A congressional committee deliberated only five years ago a plan that would have opened the door to allowing immigrants and others who do not qualify as "natural born" citizens in the United States entry into the Oval office but ended up killing the plan....

"The hearing was held Oct. 5, 2004, by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on the subject of "Maximizing voter choice: Opening the president to naturalized Americans."

"Among those providing testimony on the proposal were Chairman Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah; Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.; Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and several experts.

"What is a natural born citizen? Clearly, someone born within the United States or one of its territories is a natural born citizen. But a child who is adopted from a foreign country to American parents in the United States is not eligible for the presidency. Now, that does not seem fair or right to me," Hatch said, according to a transcript of the proceedings."

It's all just a coincidence:

Obama speaks at the Democratic National Convention on July 27, 2004.

By October of the same year, the issue of citizenship pops up as evidenced in the column above. Well, the hearing was in October, but no telling what went on behind the scenes: who was pushing for the hearings and when did the push begin?

A month later, November 2004, Obama is allegedly elected (with the help of ACORN) to the U.S. Senate.

Nov 2005, Sarah Herlihy, an associate at the Chicago firm of Kirkland & Ellis gets her paper on the issue of citizenship and the president published in the Kent University Law Review on line.  I read her paper and it's nothing more than an obvious attempt to grease the skids for Obama using 'racist' and 'discrimination' as the hot button words to sell her message.

Feb 12, 2007, Obama announces he's running for president.

In Feb and April of 2008, attempts are made via several bills introduced by senators to amend the citizenship requirements of the U.S. Constitution.

It looks like a well coordinated effort to get this guy into the White House as fast as possible.

A few months later, Leo Donofrio's case explodes in the headlines. The battle is on to remove this usurper from office.
